Fiat not interested in GM's Opel unit
Marchionne's denial of any interest in GM's money-losing Opel unit should be no big surprise. Car sales in Europe have tanked, and forging a deal with Opel would very likely cause a riot in the company's board room.
Fiat needs to concentrate on selling its Chrysler cars in the United States, just about the only place on earth where car sales are still growing. Rescuing GM from the money pit that is Opel will not do anything except weaken Fiat further and Marchionne recognizes that.
